Timeline:       1648

Association

to Charles:

Siege house was at the centre of the Siege of Colchester
during the English Civil War.
The house was at the centre of bombardment from Parliamentarians as Royalists held out barricaded in the town for 11 weeks.
Parliamentarians eventually gained control.

A King’s PresentDay Musings:

A building wonderfully preserved on first look like any historical old building. But closer inspection shows musket ball holes that stand testament to this day of the siege of Colchester.
These are marked creatively with red circles.
The building itself now a superb quality resturant run by a great friendly team.
Upstairs has a breathtaking display of a wooden beamed roof.
An amazing job has been made of preserving it all for future generations.
Highly admirable.
